His eyes lit up like a little boy talking about doing it by robotics, He said he had done it many times and sounded confident.
I had so much scar tissue to tease through from another surgery 20 years earlier and a hernia, it was getting very late so he didn't get to it. I got out of the 7 1/2 hr. operation about 11 pm.
It would have been a cool story to tell and maybe even a video to watch!

1. Minimal pain - drainage tube out in 1 week.
2. Scars healing nicely
3. Shoulder pain - be prepared for this. It lasted a week and I was told by the nurses that the gas from robotics is different than other surgeries and it is more painful. I used heat a lot but after 1 week it went away
4. Pain meds - didn't need them when I went home. I was just tired
5. If I ever need surgery again for any reason (this was my first) I would be first in line for the robot.

You should know that your body is a temple [a] for the Holy Spirit that you received from God and that lives in you. You don’t own yourselves. God paid a very high price to make you his. So honor God with your body.
